When The Star[bucks] Align (w/ Kshama Sawant)

This week, Briahna spoke to Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant about the rash of Starbucks coffee locations unionizing around the country, why the Staten Island Amazon unionization effort was successful, the problem with some professional organizers, Chris Small’s Tucker Carleton appearance, the difference between DSA and Socialist Alternative, how and why Kshama stays accountable to Socialist Alternative (and how the left could keep the squad accountable), whether the Congressional Progressive Caucus’s endorsement of Shontel Brown was the final straw for leftists hoping to change the Democratic party from with in, Socialist Alternative’s position on Russia/Ukraine, and more. It’s a rich, deeply reflective conversation, and you’re going to want to listen through to the end.
